Normally you close a switch, or turn on a transistor in order to turn a load or output on. A NOT gate/digital inverter circuit is made so that the load/output is on, until a switch is closed, or transistor is turned on, at which point the load/output is turned off. I also made a fun 555 timer logic inverter circuit in this series.
